It is highly potent and super luscious even after flowering with a short time of 8-10 weeks. The strain’s high THC level of 27% gives users an instant, intense high with powerful physical effects.
The origin of Green Gelato is the hybrids factory: the San Francisco Bay Area. Just like its name suggests, this strain has undergone a series of crossings to produce the best of the best dessert cannabis. The Italian Gelato ice cream tastes better than the plain old ice cream because it undergoes a strict production where specific ingredients are added under strict quality standards.
With the use of only exclusive genetics from SF Bay area and a professional production practices similar to those of Gelato, Queens Royal Seeds made a leading strain in flavour, effects and growing traits.
Growth and Yielding
Green Gelato is not the type of plant that you only plant and expect high yields with little or no maintenance. This hybrid is a little bit tricky to grow as it requires extra care works like pruning, topping, LST and training, plus a consistently warm temperature. You can grow your Green Gelato in indoors as well as outdoors environments, but most growers prefer indoors as it is easier to regulate the temperature.
Indoor growing also allows you to practise additional tricks like blasting the plant with cold conditions before it starts developing buds. This trick encourages anthocyanin pigments that give buds a beautiful purple colouration and enhances some aspects of the strain’s flavour.
Another thing you should be aware of is that Green Gelato, like other strains in its genetics, produces a strong aroma when growing. So, you must ensure that you have added a filter to get rid of the weed smell if you want to keep your plants a secret.
Aroma, Flavour and Appearance
Green Gelato has a citrusy tang combined with other elements of fruitiness. You can also smell some pine, earthy and dank notes when you break the buds open. Its taste is similar to its aroma, but the pine and sweetness tastes are stronger. The smoke is smooth and clear without the complex bitter found in some strains.
The buds are attractive, thanks to the dark purple hues combined with orange hairs and a shining white topcoat made of crystal resin. The buds must be properly grown to get the purple colouration.
Green Gelato has a physically relaxing effect combined with a creative and positive mental level. Despite its high THC levels, Green Gelato is a super comfy strain that offers calm and serene effects. The physical relaxation makes you feel like not wanting to move around, but it is not as strong as a coach-lock. You can still stay productive if you have a high tolerance.
